Some of the values arneh added.. not sure how extensive his changes there were.. time of day would be a good idea too (but maybe not dynamics related :p ) Windshield-wiper status for the true hardcore fraction
Is it possible to export values for:
1. Counter Meassures - Number of C/F remaining
4. Not sure about the proper name - the small lcd panel for additional text warning information.. ?
The upfront display and the ekran in the apache/havoc - yeah that should be no big problem (ie you'd get the strings displayed there)
2. Number of ammo remaining
(sub categories: gun 1-2, missile1-2 etc.)
Not sure if that is easily available.. I wouldn't want to change too much in-game, up to now it's mainly copying whole structures around, in a few central locations..I know it's on HUD but that could go down by damage
That's an interesting point as right now the exported values would still work even when the "real" (in-game) compass is damaged.. as I get these values directly from the FM and not from the helicopter model that says "you can't get this info, as the instrument went dead".. not sure about that yet I'm wondering would it be possible to revert the LPT Switch sw and board to lighting up those warnings? Perhpas not I've never seen it so far..
But for instance the Master Card from Opencockpits can handle 64 digital outputs which is enough but a bit overkill just for lighting up LEDs..
This really is a question for the simbuilders.. I can just make this info available, the actual interfacing "glue" code will have to be done by them (and hopefully shared as well)..Btw. The Havoc people if any around interested in piting are into some serious labor with so many warning lights haha..
Yes but then their simpit would be a bit more lively than the kinda sterile comanche pit
